Scottish Local Councillor Website Webmap DEMO

Embedded HTML Map

Browse all 555 topics in the embedded HTML5 version of the map below:-

Note - 'Click and drag' or use scrollbars to pan around the map, and the slider/buttons in the bottom right to zoom in/out, auto zoom to fit the whole map into the frame in its curently expanded state, focus and completely expand a selected topic, center the map on a selected topic, and search the map for a specified text string. Hyperlinks will open in a new browser tab
The HTML map export feature in MindManager 2018 is still not fully developed, so some HTML5 maps may differ slightly from the original MindManager (.mmap) file. Also HTML5 maps are not supported on all platforms in all browsers.
(Click here to see the map as a full webpage).



General Features Of Our DEMO Maps

Our DEMO maps demonstrate how:-

  • the power and versatility of MindManger makes it the "digital tool of first resort" for everybody that works with information on a daily basis.

  • our knowledge framework "basemaps" enable users to leverage that power even more.

  • the application of some "cartographic know-how" when making maps can enrich the information content and the visual communication of it to the end user.

This map can be viewed / downloaded as a native MindManager (.mmap) or dynamic HTML5 (.html) file from the top of this page.



Specific Features Of This DEMO Map

1. ALL the navigation links & headers on the website have been captured in a single map document using MindManager information mapping software:-

  • Structure of map therefore mirrors the navigation structure of the website.
    Note - There is of course nothing stopping users from re-arranging it, adding their own information to it etc. themselves within MindManager.

  • Map contains 81 Hyperlinks within 553 Branches.


2. Amongst other export options, MindManager enables maps to be published as an interactive HTML5 file, viewable in any modern browser on any device.:-

  • HTML file can be embedded in an existing web page e.g. this DEMO product page.

  • HTML file can be viewed as a complete web page e.g. the one for this map hosted on the Knowledge Mappers website.

  • HTML file could be emailed as an attachment, which will open as a "stand-alone" file in a browser without requiring any internet connection

Note - See also the MindManager Blog Post on the "Universal File Export" feature, and the MindManager online help file on Export options.


3. The "map" of the website also serves as a "visual directory / archive" of:-


4. Branches can easily be copied and pasted elsewhere in the map (or "spun-off" to create a completely new map) to form an instant knowledge framework that users can add additional information to e.g. branches concerning products and services to support members of this map have been re-used from the related map of the Improvement Service website.


5. Contextual information can be added to any map branch using Mindmanagers unique Topic Property feature e.g. no examples in this map but the Geographic area, population size and density have been added to the Scottish local council branches in the related webmap of the Improvement Service website.
Note - In MindManager map branches can be re-ordered (as well as other things) according on the topic property values.


6. The content of embedded documents can be mapped so users can assess the relevance before opening them e.g. section titles mapped within Elected Members Guidance and Briefings branches.
Note - It may be possible to map internal hyperlinks but it will depend on how the document is set up.


7. "Online Toolkits" can be mapped so users can go straight to the tool they want e.g. no examples in this map but the IS Business Analysis Framework Tool has already been mapped in information map form by us in the related webmap of the Improvement Service website. (Incidentally all of the template documents listed there can easily be reformatted as MindManager  information maps such that the entire business analysis process could be carried out in the same software environment).
Note - Not from IS but still highly relevant to public sector digital transformation, we have already mapped the online UK Government Digital Service Toolkit.


8. Map can be visually formatted to reflect corporate / brand identity e.g. map colour scheme is based on the same shade of blue used in the IS logo.



Future Development Of This Map

This map may be developed into a full product available in our mapstore (if it isn't already), or it may just remain as a demonstration and proof of concept. Whichever, we welcome your reactions and feedback by email to, or leave a comment on the "Review" tab of this page.
